Keith Blacknick aka Mediagoon, from the ever so popular website METSPOLICE.com (who I owe a banner ad to) whipped this video up from the final game. Complete with video and photos from the game in our section.
Great job Keith!
This Saturday is the last late afternoon game of the season at Citi Field. What better way to enjoy the day than with a bunch of die hards with a common bond… the Mets.
Odds are you visit Mets Blog, Mets Police, On The Black , Mets Bro and The 7 Line so this will be an opportunity to put some faces behind the guys you’ve been keeping up with all season. We welcome all other bloggers and fans to show up as well. The more the merrier.
Earlier this year we met up before one of the late Sunday ESPN games in June and had a fairly decent turnout. Since this is a Saturday night I’d expect even more heads to show up.
We’ll have the grill fired up and drinks flowing by 11am in the MTA lot across from Citi Field. Check the overhead map on the graphic above. The lot is located on the opposite side of Roosevelt Ave across from the stadium. West of the train boardwalk.
The game starts at 4pm so we’ll have plenty of time to relax before heading in. Bring your A game because we’ll be tossing some serious rounds of corn hole to kill the time. Challenge Kerel from On The Black, he got hooked at our last tailgate.
This should be a really fun time. See you all on Saturday! If you’d like to contribute to the BBQ comment below with that you’ll be bringing.
LGM! STAY LOYAL!
This Sunday afternoon before the late ESPN game is the first “Blogger Tailgate Party” at Citi Field. There have been plenty of meet up’s before but collectively this will be the first where we will all be tailgating together.
This photo to the left has absolutely nothing to do with this post besides it being a moment caught in time of an epic day back in September of 2008. We went early for a weekend double header and partied in the lot before the first game and in between during the break before game 2. I have no idea who that guy is but we had a great time talking baseball and slugging down beers. Perfect strangers bonding over our common bond of love for the NY Mets. We hope to do the same this Sunday with all of you.
I asked Brian Erni from Metsblog.com to say a little something about the day:
I’m sure there have been times where you’ve either agreed with us, and thought we were crazy. Heartily retweeted us, or banged your head against your desk because of something we wrote. But one thing is for certain: we all love the New York Mets. So this Sunday, let’s do what Mets fans do best: have a good time and talk some baseball.
Prior to the Sunday night game against the Cardinals, a bunch of Mets bloggers will be grilling, drinking and hanging out at the commuter lot on Roosevelt Avenue by Willets Point starting at 3:30pm. It’s a chance to meet some of the guys you read on a daily basis. Ever wanted to know if Kerel Cooper from On the Black is as debonair as he appears on YouTube? Or meet the faces behind the men they call Media Goon or Ceetar? Who knows? Maybe you’ll even end up a subject of one of Randy Medina’s famous photoshop jobs on Read The Apple.
Come down and have a dog and a beer in your orange and blue. Shirts from The 7 Line and/or obscure Mets jerseys encouraged!
So that’s pretty much it. I’ll be there with the others and all are welcome. We should have enough food on hand for you to down a free dog or burger but of course contributions to the coolers are welcomed.
I’ll also be bringing cornhole boards if anyone is up for the challenge.
SEEYA THERE! LGM!
